Sixteen bands battled it out for the top prizes at the event on 24-25 October, raising close to £35,000 for LandAid and other charities at the iconic King’s Cross venue Scala.

Public M&E from Max Fordham and Change Control to Major Tom from Deloitte took home the best band awards, with the best performance awards going to Canary Wharf Contractors’ Canary Wolf and Balfour Beatty’s Zero Charm.

MACE band Force Majeure and Willmott Dixon Interiors’ 1852 were crowned best fundraisers, raising £4,625 and £6,315 respectively for the charity through ticket sales and charity events.

WSP director Bill Price told Property Week that the 11th Construction Rocks was “the best so far”.

“The bands this year were brilliant, ranging from the well-established to the newly formed; from a tight quartet to a 12-piece complete with horn section.

“Having raised over £30,000, we are delighted to have surpassed last year’s total in support of LandAid, Lighthouse Club and other great causes. Our heartfelt thanks to everyone involved. I’m already looking forward to next year’s battle.”
